Vintage Inspired Summer Fun - Sophie Dress by Hopscotch Designs {Review, Giveaway, and Coupon Code} **CLOSED**

Congratulations to the winner, babybayrs!

87Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Hopscotch Designs is one of the best little online treasures that I have found to date. I have always had a feeling that I was born in the wrong decade, because I have forever loved everything vintage inspired! LOL! I often search for great vintage-inspired children's clothing, and have found many great shops along the way. But, I have to say that, until now, I had never found any children's clothing that truly sticks to your classic, vintage patterns while combining them with beautiful modern fabrics quite as well as Hopscotch Designs. They create beautiful children's outfits that are the perfect mix of past and present, and I am in love! Here is how they describe their designs:

"There is a common thread that runs through all that we design—fabrics and patterns naturally come and go, but our fascination with the past is the one constant. Our inspiration is rooted in simpler times—long summer evenings, ice cold lemonade, old pick up trucks, and hot apple pie straight from the oven—and we try to capture a little of that in every little girl’s dress, little boy’s shirt, and baby quilt we make. Combining elements of different eras, like sewing patterns inspired by past generations with new fabrics from our favorite designers (Amy Butler, Sis Boom & Heather Bailey, just to name a few) or vintage embroidered pillowcases paired with a more contemporary dress design, is our favorite way to create something a little unexpected and extra interesting. The results are sometimes quirky, sometimes funky, sometimes lovely, and always unique. For us, that’s the fun of bringing the past and present together and making them friends…we think they make a lovely couple and hope you do too!"

I was sent one of their beautiful staple designs, the Sophie dress, to review.
Inspired by a vintage apron, it immediately stood out as one of my favorites. Just looking it at makes me think of the simpler times, long summer evenings, and hot apple pie described above. Aaahhh...how lovely. And, great news, it is just as cute on as it looks on the website. The Sophie dress features frilly ruffled sleeves, a square neckline, and an apron like tie in the back. It comes in several different colors and styles of fabrics, all of excellent quality and name brand designers (i.e. Amy Butler). The dress is beautifully and professionally crafted to last for years. This will most definitely be kept for future children, and I have no doubt that it will stand the test of time. Each dress is created with a main fabric and a complementary fabric used for the trim, tie, and ruffled sleeves. The dress we received was called Sparrow which has a subtle bird design in yellows and oranges. It looks perfect on my little beach baby's tan skin! I felt like EG was in between sizes and I wanted her to get a lot of wear out of this dress, so I ordered a 2T/3T size. It's quite big on her right now, but still looks so cute with the dress tied tight in the back. It is so girly, and I especially love the ruffled sleeves! The dress is also 100% cotton which will keep her cool during our hot Alabama summers. I love this little dress and am so stoked that I was able to participate in a review for Hopscotch Designs. I definitely believe in the quality and wear of their designs, and they come at excellent prices! The Sophie dress typically runs about $38, but Hopscotch Designs has AWESOME sales and you can find them (and other outfits) for as cheap as $20! In fact, the 30s Sherbert Sophie dress is on sale right now for $20!

I can't wait to try more dresses and clothes from Hopscotch Designs in the future! Next on my list are the gorgeous Charlotte party dress and the pink birdie dress. Also, as I said above, they always have excellent deals that make the clothing affordable for everyone, literally. One particularly awesome deal is their monthly Blue Plate Special. The first friday of each month a new item is selected and offered at an extremely discounted price. For example, June's Blue Plate Special (sold out!) was the $45.99 Taylor Dress in Bella which was offered at $13.50...yep, $13.50!! Want to try out their clothing for your little one..for free?
